Support Material for the Radio Wave Propagation 2008/2009 course from the integrated master degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering froum IST. General Objectives This course intends to complement basic information on telecommunications previously received by the students. It introduces the physical mechanisms along with theoretical models for a proper characterisation of the propagation channel. This subject is relevant for understanding and designing all types of wireless systems, taking... Topic: Radio Wave Propagation
The results of VHF ionospheric scatter measurements made in the European-Mediterranean area are shown to be in good agreement with results obtained in continental United States.Sporadic-E propagation was observed much more frequently in the EuropeanMedite Topic: Ionospheric radio wave propagation.

"A full-wave solution has been obtained for radio wave propagation in the presence of an elevated tropospheric layer. This analysis was performed as part of the CNI (Communication, Navigation, Identification) experimental program. The tropospheric layer is modeled as a trilinear refractive index profile with a sufficient lapse rate so as to result in an elevated duct. The analytical solutions give the received signal level for air-to-air propagation paths at UHF, the corresponding signal...

Extensive numerical results are presented for the reflection coefficient of a horizontally stratified ionized medium. The profiles of electron density and the collision frequencies are both taken to be exponential functions. The d-c magnetic field is ta Topics: Electromagnetic waves., Ionospheric radio wave propagation.
